Discussion Thread: Kate on The View 10/31/11


Kate's off in NYC for Halloween to appear on The View. Will the ladies treat her with kid gloves? Or will they dare question her about the recent arrest of Bill Blankinship, a writer and editor for her show, on charges of child pornography, as well as their tirade against her just last month after she called Jon "mediocre"?


video

(Video, September 2011: Whoopi Goldberg, who once so desperately tried to convince the other ladies of The View Kate is an "angry bitch" who should be voted off DWTS, has finally brought them around that Kate needs to be voted off. As in, this planet.)

She'll be treated with kid gloves as usual. As I pointed out in the other thread, Whoopi sold out long ago and so did the other "ladies". They dance around any truly hardball subject; in fact they work and not calling her out. In their way they are as disgraceful as Kate is. I won't waste my time watching.

Audible Click said...

"and not calling her out" should read "at not calling her out".

Why isn't she with her kids? said...

It's Halloween...shouldn't she be with her kids? Well she certainly won't need to wear a costume to be scary. LOL.

Teresa said...

Audible Click ... You're right. Whoopi sold out big time for me when she defended Mel Gibson and Roman Polanski. No way will she or any of the other sell-outs hold that momster's feet to the fire. Don't watch, won't watch.

Well, for sure, Sherry Sheeple will defend her and probably buy into her "I'm the victim" mentality. I'm not so sure about the others.

Thanks to whoever asked about the cats. Turns out they were both shut in the basement for 8-10 hours - how that happened I have no idea! Luckily I reached my neighbor at about 7:30 a.m. and she came and rescued us. Once they finished stomping around on me and settled down, I managed to get to sleep for a bit.

Teresa, thanks again for hanging out with me last night. It was a big help! I sent Admin my phone number - if you want to do the same maybe she can get us together.

I originally thought Kate said her family did not do Halloween for religious reasons? And now all the sudden after the one Halloween episode filmed she is going to get all dressed up for The View and later take her kids trick or treating?

Does this also mean that her tree damage was not as extensive as she said? And who is going to watch her kids? Not like she has any family around or friends, I assume and not as if she'd give any credit to her ex-husband for watching them since he can alledgely only cover their lunch expenses.

I am glad I will be out the house anyway on real errands and appointments to miss her dishing out all her "ums" and "honestly's."

Of course she'll be welcomed with open arms.

Why invite someone to your home, only to trash her?

I'm not the least bit interested in watching that farce.

Bluenoser said...

*itch will dress up as herself and that is frightening enough. As usual the staff on the view will give her a pass because it isn't exactly deep investigative reporting. Won't watch.

Teresa what part of the Rock are you from; I love that Province.

Localyocul said...

Maybe the audience will boooo like when Jose Baez showed up. Of course Baba Wawa gushed over him and said he was always welcome so they have no scruples IMO. At least one sheeple tweeted excitedly that she has tickets to be at the show so at least one person will be giving a standing O

Dressed for Fornikation said...

Any guesses on what the ho' will dress up as on The View today? If she dresses like usual, she could say she is a witch or a whore or a child exploiter.
Her lack of tweeting yesterday pretty much said she was in the big city already and was a clear message to the sheep that she was being entertained so there was no need for their useless coddling.
My last question; will she be home in time to take the kids trick or treating? There will be some excuse or she will be so exhausted that the kids will once again suffer. Maybe Steve can drive them around again like last year, but leave the witch at home with her box-o-wine this time rather than passed out in the front seat.

JudyK said...

I've quit watching The View...it's amazing how uninformed they are about anything "current." The only one I can stand is Whoopi, and I'm betting she won't be there today. However, I'm watching today because I want to see Caroline Manzo. (P.S. The Talk is a much better show, and I have a feeling we won't be seeing Entitled Nobody there.)

Lake Up North said...

Now that I really think about this. I don't think Kate needs to dress up for Halloween. She should just go as she is, plenty scary enough.

Straw hair. Check
Orange skin. Check
Ridiculous clothes. Check

I got it, even if she doesn't dress up she can still pull off the scarecrow aspect I think.

So what if she would be exhausted? Can't she for once suck it up and take her kids out trick or treating? I don't care if she needs to take coffee in an IV form just go and enjoy the moment regardless of how tiered she is from The View. Like it is all that exhausting to have your makeup done and chat. Only thing I think would be exhausting is wearing her jaw out from all her "um," "like, y'know," "honestly."

Grates on my nerves she uses exhaustion to not do things with her kids. Your kids are only little once and for so long, come teen years they are going to want even less to do with her. Except you know, hit her up for money. Provided she would share any of it.

Okay, yeah I know I sound really mean but her lame ass excuse of being tiered just does not cut it. Lots of mom's are tiered and they all seem to manage just fine and give their kids good experience even if on the cheap as well.

I wonder if the View pays since most are coming on for some type of promotion.

I was wondering the same thing is she getting paid?. I mean some one has to paid the bodyguard right?

And no one will call her out on any of her stuff maybe they will bring it up a little. But they will be up her butt as usual

barbee said...

People on that show are usually promoting something. What does she have to promote? It's not like she has a show or anything. And hearing her say that Mady says she would like to be in some form of show business is just her repeating something Mady heard her say and Mady is smart enough to repeat it to make Mother Figure happy. Amazing, she was 'stranded' in the Kompound because of all the snow, or was it 'all' the trees got blown down across the driveway, or was it some nice snow plower man had plowed her driveway and moved 'all' the trees off the driveway but the roads were not plowed, or ...

Stupidity really shows when the story changes every five minutes depending on which pity button she wants to push. And when you are a clueless halfwit it's too much work to try to keep up with the current story.

Re a costume for the show today... none needed. She wants to go with her recognizable 'brand' look, you know, the aging cougarish hooker with bad hair and leather skin, you know, KATE GOSSELIN.

Eh, for all we know, this appearance was set up way back in August. Does anyone know how far ahead they book their guests?

I'm working from home today, so I could watch it, but I'm still debating. I really don't like ANY of the women on that show, so if I forget to turn on the TV, it'll be no loss at all.

----------------------

Yes, they had a preview video clip on their Facebook page, and it showed that Khate would be on today. There were over 100 comments bashing Khate on it, so it looks like they deleted their post this morning and just re-posted the info saying there will be "one special reality show guest!". They can't even say it's Khate because they don't want the negative comments. But, lol, some people have already commented to let others know that Khate is the "special reality show guest".

I think it's really odd that she got booked when she does not have a TV show or even a book to promote. That is very rare for this show. I'm wondering if TLC booked her on this show to deflect from the negative publicity about the porn arrest. I really don't think Khate could get herself booked on this show, especially with nothing to promote (except a talk at PSU, yeah, right)

Hippie Chick said...

I don't understand why this has-been keeps getting forums to speak her mind. She has nothing relevant to speak of. In light of this new controversy however, I'm hoping the "View Girls", especially Elisabeth, Whoopi & Joy have much to say.

Elisabeth is ALL about children, isn't she? Shouldn't they all be? Shouldn't Kate be? What is wrong with a mother who cares more about money than the safety of her kids. I hope The View doesn't go by the book & lays into her for once. Someone needs to make this chick squirm. Make her feel how her kids have felt for years being under the scrutiny of a camera in a dentist chair, or on a potty, or what have you.

It's time for Kate's comeuppance. She has had a pass for far too long. And Kate not seemingly caring about a potential pedophile POTENTIALLY sharing photos of her kids, & just wanting to sit in the chair of her dreams, that sickens me. It truly shows where her priorities lie.

~HC~

who cares about snow said...

No hard questions for Kate on The View.All questions will be pre-approved by Kate and Purse Boy.She also needs to know how to answer,so she can throw Jon under the bus and run over him a few times.

I think Kate will come out wearing her old porcupine-skunk wig that was popular a few years ago.

Administrator said...

I don't think anyone has mentioned this but do you know what's even more appalling about Kate claiming that they have no emergency supply? They just had the remains of a bad East Coast hurricane. Even though it looks like everyone came through just fine and it was no direct hit, surely she must have stocked up for that storm? Was it Isabel that came through PA several years ago? I was in PA for that one and it was pretty bad, but we all knew it was coming for days and prepared. Everything outside was brought in, stocked up on food and water, candles, flashlights, the works. And then after that? It was kind of fun to watch all the fierce rain, we could enjoy it.

There is no excuse for someone who has lived in PA as long as she has to not be prepared for a weather emergency. At any time of the year. They get them all the time.

In CA we don't get the luxury of knowing what time of year an earthquake usually hits. We have to just be prepared for the big one to hit any day of the year. It's not rocket science.

Westcoaster said...

"my view girls" - throwing up in my mouth just a little, cannot think of one reason for this ridiculous person, with nothing but her Flister self to promote, has been asked back by this show. Halloween as done x8? Whooey, do they have the wrong Mom there.

Administrator said...

If the View girls want to maintain the .00001% of respect I have left for them, they will ask her about Bill Blankinship. They can ask politely, but they have to ask. They just have to.

Just Me said...

There is a post up on Kate's blog chronicling the dreadful damage with ALL the trees being down along her driveway.

I'm not sure how her story squares up with what she tweeted. I could have sworn she tweeted they were stuck in the McMansion with no power and the trees were ALL down in the driveway. In this version, she says they got out of there when the branches started falling because it was unsafe.

Frankly, only the one tree looks bad and it doesn't look like it fell into the driveway. It looks like a few branches were in the driveway and she would have no problem getting over them in an SUV.

There are 3 pictures included. For your convenience I've put the pictures up at tinypic so you don't have to give her hits. They are linked where they show up in the post.




Our Power Has Returned!


More to come on this subject soon…ohhh the things I learned!
But in the meantime, check out our damage! ;(

The beginning. Pretty, right?

Branches started coming down - one every five minutes. We got out of there at that point! It wasn't safe!

So many trees look like this... This one is the worst!

Awwww, Mary Ann, thanks, you're sweet!

She tweeted when she was talking about ALL the trees being down that she really mourned the loss of privacy they gave her. Remember TLC paid for those trees if I'm thinking correctly.

Barbara Walters is not on the Halloween show.

By the way, Kate was promoed that she's going to talk about "how scared she is to take her eight kids trick or treating (HUH?) and will she be able to resurrect her show?"

Just Me said...

I don't understand how her tweets square up with the post she made. If they left when the branches were all falling down because it was unsafe, then how was she stuck in the house with no power?

You can't really have it both ways.

Stewmama said...

Thanks Just Me for the pictures. Sure does look like it was a dangerous situation for Kate and the kids. So dangerous in fact Kate had one of the kids go out by the fallen branches to pose for a picture. Wonder if Steve cleaned up the driveway so that Kate could make it to safety? She most likely had the kids get out there and do it for her.

Hoosier Girl said...

Just Me said...

Her "the worst" tree isn't in the driveway. The rest are just branches that could have been easily dragged out of the driveway.

Check out her TwitIQ - shows all her tweets on the subject. All the "trees" were down in the driveway. She couldn't get out. The kids all had to sleep together in one room. Blah blah blah. Typical Kate - Mother Nature is out of her control so she completely freaks.

Melissa said...

I don't post often but the comment of "brances down all over" made me laugh out loud. Several years ago we were at my husband's parents when a hurricane hit. They have a long windy tree-filled driveway. After the storm we had to cut through 12 groups of fallen trees and each group was sometimes more than 1 tree. There were maybe 4 branches on her driveway. Hahahahaha. I can show her pictures if she'd like to see what branches down all over looks like.

Kate the idiot said...

My God....those are BRANCHES...not TREES.

What a stupid woman.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Well, Governor Christie (NJ), thank you for having a press conference about the storm damage and power outages just as The View went into the commercial break and said that Khate was up next! LMAO!! He's still on as I type, no Khate, YAY!

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Oh, it came back just as Khate was answering a question and said "Um, he has them every other weekend".

A question about taking them to Hollywood (no) and it's OVER!

Clicker said...

It didn't take long for K8 to dis Jon.... She said she is not affected by Jon's opinions and that her goals are all she cares about (I am paraphrasing here)

Both of those 'sediments' are 1,000% obvious, to the detriment of anyone in her orbit.

Kat said...

I can say for a fact that no one in jersey saw that idiot. Perfect timing....

chefsummer said...

Sooo Jon has the kids ever other weekend

I thought it was 2 weekend a month???

Kate is a twit said...

I live in the NYC area and I turned on ABC to check out the View, and just as Kate was about to come on, the program was interrupted for a news conference by NJ's governor regarding the storm! When the View came back on, they were thanking Kate for appearing. I feel sorry for all those sheeple in the NY metro area that couldn't see their idol. They must be fuming.

Jane said...

Ha! Only the last minute of Kate aired in the new york market. Gov of NJ pre-empted her. I did hear her say something about death and kids? what was that about?

gramof5 said...

She left those kids for this gig? How sick is she?

Mimi to 3 said...

O.K., I watched. Only a brief less than 10 minute segment with her. Nothing was mentioned about the pornography -- not one thing. It was totally superficial, only the same old questions, when will you get remarried, are you dating, who will take on you and 8 kids? She and Jon are not on the same page, she can't go back to nursing to support 8 kids. We had a snow storm instead of being able to make our pumpkins. And A bunch of honestly's and I'll be honest and a slew of ummmmmm's. A lot of interrupting of each other and THAT WAS IT. A total waste of time.

Byebye view - been a loyal viewer since day one....not more for me.

JudyK said...

What a Twit! Just saw her on The View, and it was the WORST interview ever...I lost track of the "uh's" and "umm's"...and she sits there and turns her feet in like a little kid. She has NO POISE. And, of course, there were the usual, "To be honest," and "I won't lie" remarks and her saying she never comments on Jon. And she's crying poor again...she is INSUFFERABLE...I cannot take her for one more second. Where is Caroline Manzo? That's who I tuned in for...did I misunderstand?

Just Me said...

I watched and to be honest I can't even tell you what she said. It was SSDD for the most part. Mom of 8. 8 kids. It's hard. Nursing for back up plan won't work. I want to stay in tv. blah blah blah.

They asked her about Jon's mediocre comment and she said I normally don't comment on Jon's comments (or something like that). When my eyes stopped rolling out of my head and I stopped laughing hysterically so I could hear what she was saying, she was actually trying pretty hard to not throw him under the bus and then Joy cut her off because she had a chance to say much more and asked how often Jon sees the kids. She said every other weekend and before she could get up a head of steam on that answer, they changed the subject again to the rumor about taking the kids to hollywood and being their manager.

They did not ask about Blankinship at all :(


The "girls" were on display and I may be wrong, but I swear Joy made a comment about them at the very beginning when she sat down.

Hoosier Girl said...

chefsummer said...

Every other weekend would be two weekends a month. I'm not on his twitter - but he tweets that he has them more I think.

Did Whoopie say one word while Kate was on?

Kate is a twit said...

As far as Kate saying "We got out of there at that point!"(about the trees). I think she meant that got out the area where the tree branches were falling-not about leaving the house.

Clicker said...

Not that her sheeple will acknowledge, but she was (at least temporarily) honest enough to admit that Jon has the children "every other weekend". She still claims the children "ask constantly" where "their crew" is.

Relief! ---- there was NO announcement or promotion of anything having to do with the G8.

NT said...

Hooker Zombie was just on the View!! So she doesn't carve pumpkis,she paints them and they couldn't do it because they were shoveling snow. Jon has the kids every other weekend,which means 2 weekends a month and she doesn't usually comment on what he says. All lies and she did look like a hooker zombie. Why she was there is a mystery. Probably the only reality star who would leave their kids on Halloween.

Dallas Lady said...

It was totally boring, not even worth re-capping, IMO.

Sherri Shepherd quoted Jon when the show was canceled ("he's relieved the kids are away from e cameras, reality TV is not a career, etc") and she said she doesn't really comment on what Jon says (SINCE WHEN?) and then went on to say his opinions don't affect her and the PLAN they had when they were married WAS reality TV. Ah, thanks for your rare honesty, Kate, but we knew that all along.

I was startled when she said the kids miss the crew members, keep asking when they're going to come over to "play with them" and that a few of them are coming soon to "dress them up and play in the snow with them."

Especially in light of a pedo just being busted who was the editor on 23 episodes, that was a pretty gross and totally tone-deaf thing for her to say.

Joy got in a dig: she said last year, the Kate Gosselin Halloween get-up was hot (that was actually two years ago, I believe) and this year, it's Casey Anthony, how do you feel about that, Kate? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Kate just said she'd rather be Kate Gosselin. Joy also asked her what guy would be willing to take on eight kids? Whoopi hardly asked her anything. It was mostly Sherri Shepherd. She got about 6 minutes.

The TV creator of Walking Dead was way more entertaining and funny. As usual, Kate was boring and dragged the whole tone of the show down.

She doesn't know what she's going to do next, but she wants to be on TV, said being a nurse WON'T support her eight kids. Insinuated again that she's all alone in raising them/taking care of them. That's why Joy asked how often Jon has them and she said every other weekend, but if you read her tweets, seems more like EVERY weekend these days. And then some. I mean it's Monday, I'm sure he has them now until she gets back.

Just like Kate, the segment was boring and idiotic. If you didn't watch, you missed nothing.

Thanks for the reviews from those who did watch. Why did they book her? If "Um..." hasn't been eliminated from her rehearsed responses, she must be doing the I-am-so-cute-little-girl-with-sweet-thoughts routine.

There was absolutely no reason for her to be on except as a filler and a chance to be alone with Steve in NYC. Hopefully this was the last time.

Whoopi must have been told to shut up during the interview. No questions regarding the pedophile editor.

So am asking myself, what was the point of rehashing her standard questions and answers? Was this another lame attempt to use this as a tv job interview? Kate has ABSOLUTELY nothing else to talk about other than her kids and herself.

That whole 'couldn't do pumpkins had to shovel snow' really threw me off. That snow was supposed to melt off in a day right? Why not spend the day decorating pumpkins - it's not like she had other pressing things to do like go to a JOB.

KG was most likely pre-interviewed (as most guests are) and told the View producers what questions she will answer..do you really think KG would allow an interviewer pose challenging questions? I think not...Did anybody notice how nobody stood up to greet her? except Whoopi who looked completely disgusted the entire time and didn't as one question.. So tired of this woman comlaining about being a single mom of 8 kids and worrying about the fact that her show (kate plus kate plus kate) was cancelled..Perhaps she should have thought about providing for 8 kids before the IVF... Prior to having the kids KG didn't know that she would be offered a reality series.. So tell me KG, how in the world did you plan on supporting your children? STOP whining and STOP with the "poor me" act... KG should NOT be on t.v. ..she should be taking care of the children and start "damage control" for exploiting her little girls/boys.. they have been exposed to some creepy people out there.. It's time for KG to go away !!

She only *thinks* she has grown up. Just goes to show how verrrrrrry backward she still is.

Every other weekend is most certainly not two weekend a month all the time. It is often THREE. Look at a calendar. Up until Now Kate has always sold Jon short by makin it seem as little as possible.

JudyK said...

Oh, one more thing...she did talk about how some of the crew still come back "to play with the kids" (WTF!!!) and how the kids miss the crew and how upset they were about the show being cancelled. And Whoopi did ask her one question about what she thought when she saw herself on t.v., and she never looked at Whoopi once in answering it, but looked at the camera or at Sherri.

I thought so but she change it ever time when someone asked her. I got alitte confused also since Jon said it was 3x a month so....

Just Me said...

re: the dead comment

Joy asked her essentially wouldn't it be hard for her to find a man willing to take on 8 kids alive or dead (though she meant undead, as in zombies).

Kate said well actually dead might be easier or something like that. It was a slightly tone-deaf response, IMO.

Clicker said...

I can't believe that when the children are "allowed" tv time that they STILL mostly watch their own DVDs. She mentioned that their DVDs were showing in the little girls' room when K8 put them to bed. I recall the DVDs playing in the nursery before their naps, but what kind of habit is this? Does she never read them to sleep? She and they are really missing out!

Yes, you nailed it.

Laurel Lee said...

You know when you have to say "honestly", "I don't want to lie", etc., you are suspect. What, do you normally lie? She can deny it all she wants but Jon's opinions do affect her...he is the father of those 8 children. From this point on, he will have a say in what they are involved in and it will need his approval. I was so glad she wasn't a co-host and that they spent so little time with her. There was no love loss at all in that segment. Loved how they compared the Casey Anthony mask to the Kate Gosselin mask...good one Joy. Thought when they mentioned the crew, the news about the pedophile would come up but it didn't.

Kat said...

Sounds like same old bullsh@t, different day. Can't they think of anything else to ask this twit. They brought her all the way to NY for THAT? For the love of...how many times can any sane person listen to the exact same questions again and again. I could recite those questions in my sleep. Face it..the interset is gone...She sure won't go down without a fight! Still asking(begging)for a T.V. gig. Lord have pity on her soul

Just Me said...

I am friends with Jon on twitter. He has confirmed that he has the kids more than 2 weekends a month. He doesn't say how often exactly.

He also refuses to post pictures of the kids when requested saying that they are for family only when they are with him.

He talks to the kids on the phone and helps with homework according to his tweets as well during the week on days he does not see them.

I tend to believe him over Kate.

Dallas Lady said...

Whoopi did sort of spit out one question at her: do you ever watch the show and think "who IS that woman?" Translation: you're a bitch, Kate.

She gave this long story about the kids watching it and one night she saw herself in an episode (apparently the kids fall asleep watching the show!) and was like (she did this dramatic disgusted face that wasn't funny or interesting and got zero reaction from anyone). And then she went into growing as a person, we're all a work in progress, she grew up on the show, blah blah more bullshit.

Gift of grab said...

I think it's karma for sure that most of Kate's View appearance was not even seen in the TriState area! And the one minute that was shown, you can see Whoopi biting her lip as Kate says something about Jon, and then Joy asks her (in a very half-hearted way) about whether she's planning to take the kids to H'wood. No idea if she was asked about the Blankinship news, doubt it. As they finished with her to go to break, it took at least 20 seconds for the clapping to start.

Can't wait to see the full clip, I think this was a PR disaster for her. In case anyone was wondering, the lack of a "gift of gab" could not have been more clear; she was stilted and pretty much humorless--she might as well be a zombie for all of the charisma she throws off.

Wait a minute..... said...

Administrator said... Every other weekend is most certainly not two weekend a month all the time. It is often THREE. Look at a calendar. Up until Now Kate has always sold Jon short by makin it seem as little as possible.

________________________________________

"Every other weekend" works out to two more weekends a year than "twice a month." 26 vs. 24. That is hardly *often*. You're just splitting hairs.

Just Me said...

Kate is a twit I see what you are saying about the trees. If she was a better writer that would be clear and/or if she didn't lie like a rug we wouldn't question everything she said.

I didn't initially see one of the kids was standing out near the downed branches in that photo until someone mentioned it. So I think you are probably correct.

It's just like bi-weekly payroll. Two months per year you get 3 paychecks in one month. Two months per year Jon would have the kids 3 weekends.

Me too. I think everyone but the sheeple know that if Kate's fingers or lips are moving - she's lying.

Maggie said...

Whoopie did ask Kate a question. Are you ready for it? Here goes: Who was that woman on your show? Kate answered that she was in the little girls room putting them to bed and the kids were watching old tapes of the show. And she caught a glimpse of herself. She said she is a work in progress and blah, blah, blah. I really don't remember what she said.

A poster mentioned the mediocre comment was mentioned. That is not correct. The comment was about Jon was glad the kids were off tv.

Kate was very boring, the segment lasted about 8 minutes. And I thought she was very nervous.

Again, we got no new information at all. None. The same garbage over and over. The whole theme of Zombie reality stars was terrible.

Administrator said...

It's actually more than two. The year 2011 has FIVE months that he would get 3 weekends. Almost half the year he gets the kids threw times a month.

anger issues kate said...

What a waste of TV! Kate said nothing, we have not heard before. Her Manager must have begged the View, Ladies or Bill to get her on their. Since they talked about nothing. Kate, did not really bash Jon, but her answer did change a bit, it was more of, well that is his opinion, and left it at that. Kate did not go into it like last time. Her ummms & mmmm were annoying. Her costume, nothing interesting. Pretty lame. Her same old BS. Why was she on there?
Ohh Yeah, those pics of Kate at the radio station: she looks like a teen/20ish and acts like a teenager, with the goofy grins.

Bill's Mom said...

Amazing!Kate can't even be a zombie like everyone else on the show. She has to be a hooker zombie. So what's different? She still had low cut top, short skirt, hooker heels. The most interesting part of her appearance was that she constantly rocked both ankles back and forth. What's with that? Oh yes, she said she wants to be the best "me" she can be. so again, what's new?

Maggie said...

At the very beginning of the show, they had a clip of all the co-hosts and Bill Getty pre-planning about what the theme would be for their Halloween show this year. Bill mentioned reality zombies and no one like the idea. Joy hated it. Even though everyone hated the idea, Bill said that would be the theme this year.

I thought crosses my mind that he always had a crush on Kate. Maybe Bill made up this stupid theme to get Kate on the show. Any thoughts?

Administrator said...

Hoosier you're figuring out every other weekend whih is correct. I'm figuring first, third and fifth weekend which I what I suspect it really is. That is more, since you start over at the beginning of each month-- which results in two weekends in a row sometimes. For obvious reasons a 1-3-5 arrangement is better for dads and is consistent with what Jon has old us, ie 3 weekends a month.

Dallas Lady said...

Since the show ended, he's had them more than every other weekend.

Westcoaster said...

Wait, her View Ladies did not ask her to take a permanent chair? She must be devastated. Tricks on you this Halloween, going home with an empty candy bag. Very stupid to even mention her crew daddies this morning, sure sounds like she was not anyone's choice, and guess those ladies have no real vetting power, all about the commerciality. Now is it possible to get home by school bus time, or are there too many trees on the road?

Administrator said...

The reason I also think its 1-3-5 is that's as standard as apple pie in family law cases.

Ah ha. I get what you're saying.

In Indiana we take every other in the technical sense. It really means every other :) There is no starting over afresh each month.

Administrator said...

Right that's what I'm trying to get at. Kate says every other in the layman sense. Jon says 3x which is.....1-3-5 in the family law sense. Hence, Kate sells him short.

Kate is a twit said...

Just one more point about the kids being under the trees.

Kate should have realized that it wasn't safe before they even went out there. Branches were already down-did she even think that more branches could come down on top of her kids? Just like her tweets show-she never thinks. ahead.

nit picker said...

Not to drag this convo on forever, but Kate says twice a month. Which is incorrect. She says that to make is sound a little time as possible because...she's stupid and a bitch

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Here's a transcript of all I saw after it came back right at the end of her segment:


Khate: Um, he has them every other weekend.

Joy: Oh

Elisabeth: ....(crosstalk) to have this discussion while we're dressed as zombies

Khate: I do. I actually, um I had to like revert my conversation back, like, 'cause I caught you, your flip flops at one point, so I just had to....

Joy: Kate, I heard you were going to be the kids' manager, you were taking them to Hollywood, and get into a show biz career with your kids, and you were going to manage them. Is that true?

Khate: I, you know what, to be honest, just doing, like, family pictures wears me out, so forget that,(Laughter by Khate and I think Elisabeth) So, there is just zero truth to that.

Joy: There's no truth?

Khate: I mean, honestly, I laughed when I read that.

Joy: Uh huh

Khate: Absolutely, off we go to Hollywood. (Khate does a huge eye roll, smiling)

Joy: Don't you think it's going to be hard to find a guy who's going to be taking on eight kids, dead or alive, zombie or not? That's going to be tough.

Khate: I think dead might be, you know, a positive for him, you know.

Joy: That's tough.

Khate: Um, yeah, it is.

Sherri Shepherd: You know what, thank you so much for coming to this show and speaking about such serious stuff, the dead. It's so funny.

Khate: It is so strange.

Sherri: Thank you, you got to come back. We want to thank Kate Gosselin. We're going to be right back.....

----------------------

I don't think her booking on The View had anything at all to do with Khate. It wasn't to promote a damn thing, which is usually the point of segments on this show. I doubt Khate's manager or agent contacted The View and secured this gig. Instead, I think The View decided to do a zombie reality characters theme for the Halloween show and looked around for what reality people they could have on. Khate was probably the easiest one to get booked since she lives nearby and has little else going on. That's it, Khate, nothing else. Just like the rest of America, they "honestly" don't give a crap about you!

Well, hey, at least she got another freebie night in her favorite hotel in NYC. Plus, she can go home in costume and be all ready for Halloween. She must like that, since she never does anything for herself or on her own.

Wait a minute..... said...

Every other weekend is the standard in my state as well.

I don't think Kate is trying to sell Jon short, I think she's just wording things differently. Every-other-weekend could sometimes result in three times a month, which may be what Jon has spoken of in the past. But it *usually* is twice a month.

Splitting hairs. Not important in the grand scheme of things. It's not enough time with their father, no matter how you look at it - but if Kate were someone more likable we would feel sorry for her that she isn't able to spend every weekend with them.

What bugs me the most about this is the use of the words "get" or "has" in custody discussions. "He gets them twice a month." "She has them most of the time." Children are not possessions.

fidosmommy said...

Carol, thank you for posting those TV screen shots. Now, I have to ask WHAT are those little dangly thingies (!) in Kate's hair? They look like people. But there are more than 8 of them.
Any ideas?

NT said...

Wonder if the kids are going trick or treating tonite? Or is it canceled till wed or Thur like in other states that got a lot of snow? Maybe Jon will take them or the "friends" house that they are at right now. Was school canceled today?

Laine said...

I wonder if Kate has been told by TLC and/or their lawyers, her lawyers or any law enforcement agencies not to comment on the porn editor because an investigation is still ongoing? She could have told the view that she would not be able to say anything.

Joy didn't believe a word she said today said...

You can always tell when Joy is pissed and doesn't like someone... she asks question, listens to response then says:

"uh huh"...........

Her "uh huh" always has a real disbelieving tone.

The subscript is: "right - I wish you weren't on here, you're not a worthy guest"

amyf said...

If Kate's away on "her" weekend, does/should Jon have the option of having the kids (even though it's not "his" weekend) rather than having them left with a nanny? It would make sense to me...

Stupid Is said...

I'm not surprised they didn't bring up the arrests but how stupid is Kate to say that grown men are coming over to play with her children?

She's beyond stupid.

This is really off topic.but thought you all would want to know this breaking news!!! Wait for it..... Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband Kris. Now who did not see that coming. I think that was all for tv anyways. They just did not look right together. Okay,back to all that is kate gosselin.

Pam said...

"My View girls"?????

She acts like she used to work with them and they are long time best buds and she goes back every now and then to visit.

Does she not see that they look pained to have to sit with her and talk to her? Did you see the awkward hugs? She barely puts anything into a hug. You can tell it is awkward for her.
( Me....I give big booby hugs and will squish you silly....LOL )

On that note, she sure looked nervous and tongue tied. That nervous laugh is annoying. She does NOT look comfortable despite what she claims. Gift of gab my bahonkus. She only ever just answers questions. She never gets into or initiates conversation. If no one asked her anything, she'd just sit there.

I will say, though, that this was the best she's ever looked on tv.

Dallas Lady said...

Kim Kardashian made money and got attention for the wedding. The marriage part was never supposed to last long.

chefsummer said...

Sooo no menu monday's???.

----------------------

I guess not! Oh no! Whatever will the poor sheeple make for dinner tonight?!

Now that Halloween is here and it's too late for Khate to read this and get any ideas, I just have to say how very, very lame her blog is. For the last few weeks, all the recipe and mommy bogs have been posting such cute things for Halloween.

The mommy crowd is Khate's target demo, isn't it? The mommy blogs and recipe blogs have all posted Halloween craft ideas for kids, and Halloween recipes and treats, all with excellent photos. But, what does Khate do? Oh, that's right, she just keeps posting all about Me, Me, Me, on her dumbass blog! She really is just SO stupid. Her blog attempt is very half-assed and pathetic.

Also, did she even bother to promote her website on The View? Or her Twitter account? Don't tell me she is so stupid that when they asked her about what's going on with her after the show cancellation, she didn't excitedly say "I have a great new website for all my fans, and I post photos, recipes, Q&A, etc. It's www.blah blah blah."

Really, she must have at least had one brain cell functioning enough that she would, at the very least, use this View appearance to promote the website. So, did she?? If she did NOT even mention the website, that pretty much proves that her agent or manager did NOT book this for her, it was simply The View contacting the nearest, easiest to book reality loser they know, to fit in with their theme of the show today. If Khate had an agent or manager advising her, they surely would have told her to use the appearance to PROMOTE the website, not to talk about the divorce or ex, when it's been over for two and a half years! Duh!

Berks County Mom said...

That whole 'couldn't do pumpkins had to shovel snow' really threw me off. That snow was supposed to melt off in a day right? Why not spend the day decorating pumpkins - it's not like she had other pressing things to do like go to a JOB.


________________________

During the snow on Saturday, I looked at the temps that were forecast for Sunday (day after the storm) and knew that I wasn't going to shovel anything. My neighbors were out shoveling Saturday night when the snow stopped, and I laughed. It was totally unnecessary. By 10 a.m. Sunday, all of the snow was gone from the sidewalks and streets. The grassy areas were still covered, but I couldn't believe how fast it melted from the streets. You never would have know that it had snowed. By Sunday afternoon, they were bone dry. There was no reason for her to shovel anything if she would have looked at the forecast, which she obviously doesn't or she wouldn't have been so ill-prepared for the power loss.

Flip flops? What?

But, but, but, but Kate already DID that! Did you miss it? She posted pictures of her apple slices with marshmallow teeth. What more could mommies want from Kate?

mamaK said...

The flip flops were part of Elizabeth's costume. Not sure what she was though. Muscle man in a hot tub with barbies? Weird. So, Kate was trying to say something about the costume, but it didn't come out and she got cut off.
She didn't mention her website, didn't mention her twitter. Didn't mention any plan, other than "I've found what I like to do" and "I want to stay on tv" I really don't understand why they had her on for an interview. And she trys to act like they are all best friends, but she was visably awkward, nervous, and uncomfortable.
She is really good at confusing you enough while not answering your question that you just drop it and move on. There were many questions like that. The "who is that woman" question, the "will be you able to get home in time to do something with the kids tonight" question, the "how will you support your kids" question...she blabbers on about nothing and none of it makes sense, so its just easier to move on to another question/topic, and she never really answered them. And, really, it was so much nonesense that I really have no idea what she said/talked about other than her clear "I have eight kids and someone out there has to give me a job on television."
Never watching the view again. It was horrible!

PJ's momma said...

I thought I was done with this woman, but The View was on at the gym. I laughed out loud when she said she doesn't typically comment on what Jon says. Ummmm, honestly, didn't she receive some of her biggest backlash EVER with the 'mediocre' comment, which was made in response to what Jon said about reality TV not being a career? Of course, the View women, who had a whole conversation about that incident, did not say a word. I turned up Shinedown on my headphones after that. For being so comfortable on TV, she sure does look uncomfortable - constant foot play, little eye contact, much stumbling, etc. She just is not going to get that she is done with TV until she is forced to get a real job.

Pity Party said...

She didn't lose any trees in the driveway. They will live to see another day. Even the big one will survive. It was no where nearly as bad as she made it out to be. I still think most of that was for Steve's benefit because he was not there and she was hoping he was watching her twitter. Apparently he is not as dumb as we thought and is spending some time with his family, finally. I can't believe she did not have a job to promote and is still maintaining the same lavish lifestyle. I wonder if she bothered to help Terri out and mention the zoo. Guess not. The way it sounds as soon as the power came back on she shipped the kids off to her friend's house. Wonder if that is the "first friend" that she took the kids to for some type of party. Who has a first friend. Guess her and Jamie didn't patch things up. It is like she never existed after all the BFF talk, sleepovers, etc.

I think it was sliced almonds for teeth. Plus, we immediately saw that she simply took a pic of her magazine and tweeted that, implying it was her own "creation", which some of the sheeple believed.

Dallas Lady said...

Nobody, great points! And NO, she didn't mention her website, not even once. She didn't mention Twitter, nothing.

When she mentioned family photos wiping her out, she could have mentioned that the pics are on her website, but no.

The ONLY pertinent question in the entire six minutes was this one, asked by Sherri Shepherd:

You have all your children, do you know what you're gonna do next, do you--is it a little scary?

Kate: It is, it actually is really scary, um, because that's a lot of weight on my shoulders, um, it's eight kids and I don't take it lightly so, you know coming up, I'm hoping to obviously stay in TV. I've found what I liked to do....and...it's exciting and adventurous and every day is--

Sherri: Now you have a nursing degree, could you, did you ever think about going back to nursing?

Kate: It was always, you know in the past, it was my back-up plan but one day when you realize that your back-up plan isn't gonna work to provide for eight kids it gets scarier.

Elizabeth: Are you--right now, moving forward, ok career-wise, that's one area, what about relationships (blah blah blah)...

So that's it. She didn't promote the website, she didn't promote her Twitter feed, she didn't mention a single possible job or project. And for those who think TLC is still taping/going to do specials, I'm just not seeing it. I don't think so.

I forgot how much I hate her huffy little sighs.

Everyone looked bored to tears, no joke.

mamaK said...

Just saw her tree/snow photos. Seriously??? There's very little damage. The one tree that is bad is still not a big deal. Nothing close to it, no tree limbs on the garage or house. A few thin branches down on the drive, but there is no way she was outside shoveling snow. Come on! There was not enough snow to need to be shoveled, and it was slushy snow that is easy to drive thru. And someone did drive thru it because there are tire tracks in the snow. Can't wait to hear all the lessons that she learned from her Harrowing time being snowbound with eight kids. Sick.

Pity Party said...

I watched the wedding for the first time Sunday. It was can we say lavish. I would divorce her too after the talk about a "hump rope" (apparently she has a K rope of something) and "hump" this or that (forgot what else) that her mom the manager was talking to her about if she changed her name. They had no chemistry and he made her look painfully short.

Layla said...

I think her agent has a bigger client that the Fiew wanted to interview, and the agent said, "Okay, but you have to take Kate Gosselin, too". She was even more pathetic than usual.

Dallas Lady said...

I realize now Twitter and the website are perfect for her, because she can make herself out to be perfect happy mom and she can respond only to things she wants to respond to and create this perfect picture of the perfect mom.

In person, even just on TV, it all falls apart.

Give her enough rope to hang herself... said...

I don't really mind her being on TV - I don't watch and she inevitably makes herself look soooooooooooo pathetic.

I say, let her be on by herself a few more times and the hollywood hoohoos will finally have it sink in that she's a loser.

Someday she'll have to get a job of some kind. Maybe by then she'll have had the kids taken away from her, they will be happily living with Jon.

I also suspect at some point in the future she might have to file bankruptcy and will lose the house.

----------------------------

It's so unbelievable how Khate thinks she has a "career" in TV! So what, she was on a reality show? That doesn't mean she is good at any job in TV, let alone her "dream job" of co-hosting a show like The View. She's been given so many opportunities, including a pilot for that Paula Deen talk show, and failed miserably at all of them.

Also, I wish that just once, someone would ask her how she plans to get a TV job while living in PA, hours from NYC? There aren't many jobs in that field to begin with, but even if she did get something in NYC, what would she do, leave the kids with nannies all week and see them only on weekends? At that point, Jon would have a good basis to move for primary physical custody and Khate can have the "two weekends a month". Plus, she can pay child support commensurate with her big TV income!

The fact that she still thinks nursing is a "back up plan" belies her repeated cries of poverty and being worried about supporting her kids. If she really didn't have a stash of cash in the bank, she'd get out there and find a nursing job. She clearly has NO intention of doing so. She really is dreaming and banking on the idea that she will get a highly paid job in TV somehow. That's irresponsible parenthood as far as I'm concerned. The payments and expenses on that house, and the tuition payments, together with all the other living expenses, plus her three vehicles and "helpers", all must be eating through her cash at a very fast clip. If she truly were worried, she'd scale back the expenses and get a JOB!

How long can she possibly hold put, hoping and dreaming for a TV gig? I still see a short sale or foreclosure and/or a bankruptcy in her future. I'm so glad for Jon that he got away from her and out from all those unnecessary expenses. Khate, you wanted the "mine, all mine" house, you GOT it! Enjoy! Ha!

Just Down The Road said...

I took a drive past there. I had thought there was a natural disaster, and trees were uprooted, falling everywhere, a regular armageddon. Nope. Branches are off the trees, but from what I could see, none is "down." They just need to be pruned, broken limbs cut away, and all should be fine. They may take some time to recover, but it doesn't appear to be a big loss. What was she talking about, that the trees were so expensive to replace? I didn't see anything that needs to be replaced. It was getting dark when I drove past, so maybe I'll head out that way tomorrow during the day and see if there's more damage than what I saw.

Responding to one more older comment, (hope no one minds, but it is relevant to The View discussion):

Dallas Lady said...
People on Twitter think they're including The View in their tweets by adding @theview, but their twitter address is @theviewtv.
-------------------------------------------

That's probably because Khate herself was the one using the wrong Twitter name for The View from the beginning! Like I said in other comments, she is terrible at using Twitter. She is too lazy and/or dumb to check for someone's correct Twitter name before she tweets them. So, she just assumed that was what The View's Twitter name was:

Kateplusmy8 Kate Gosselin
YES! See me on @TheView on Monday! Yay! I love my View ladies! I miss them and can't wait to dish with them on Halloween! Don't miss it!
October 28th 12:07 PM

Khate is finally now using the correct Twitter name for The View, BUT only because her sheeple tweeted the correct name to her! She is so clueless and helpless with everything!

Layla said...

She just reeks of desperation these days. That alone makes her entertainment road kill. And she is not about to go back to a mediocre job like nursing because she thinks she is too good for that. She'll hang on by her fake nails until her world comes crashing down around her. Or she thinks that when her money runs out, she can just grift her lifestyle, just like she always has done. She thinks she can just post her "prayer lists" and other people can pick up her tab so she doesn't have to. It has always worked for her before, why would she think it wouldn't work now?

Sherry Baby said...

Was anything mentioned about the charity luncheon or her big running marathon?
So there was no big announcement that she landed a job on television, the fate of Twisted Kate, specials coming up? She promoted NOTHING? Why was she there?

Really?...REALLY?? said...

A great solution from the fanz:

“If a perv gets off seeing a few seconds shot of baby in a bathtub, they are so sick they should be locked up for life.”

Clicker said...

So that's it. She didn't promote the website, she didn't promote her Twitter feed, she didn't mention a single possible job or project. And for those who think TLC is still taping/going to do specials, I'm just not seeing it. I don't think so.
*****************
This is one glaring thing (among many) that K8 fails to understand is part of the job of "being a celebrity". You have to SELL yourself and you have to SELL all of your connections to your potential audience!!!! That is the JOB! If you cannot make people excited and interested in tuning in to what you are doing, and with whom, NO ONE WILL CARE OR WATCH! K8 always has ample opportunities to promote her connections who, if she did promote them, would want to have her on more frequently. She simply fails to understand the business she so wants to be a part of that it is not surprising she will not succeed at it. EVERYONE in show business needs to have their egos stoked - no one succeeds In show business without at least a minimal ego

It boggles my mind that she has learned nothing about her so-called dream career.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Wow...

So basically she said a whole load of nothing?

Proof that Kate does not belong on t.v.
She has nothing to offer. Not even a good joke.

Thanks to "Just me" for posting the links to Kate's tree tragedy, Carol for posting photos of Kate without makeup, "Nobody Likes a Narcissist" for the truncated (hahaha, good ole Governor Christi) transcript, and everybody else that shared what they saw this morning :o)

Oh yes, Kate had better reconsider that employing that Nursing license...SERIOUSLY.

How disappointed are Kates 6 fans? The View interview was a complete bust, IMO of course! Why no promoting her web site, twitter, next wks speaking engagement, Las Vegas marathon & her Australia trip for the Steve Irwin day gala, where she will be auctioned off for a lunch date? I found Kate very nervous and her "um's" and "likes" take over when she speaks.

Just catching up on all the posts. Thanks to all for taking the time to watch and post. By not watching her 'performance', I missed nothing.

I'm not into twitter and/or celebrity websites. Can someone tell me if "real" celebrities communicate with their followers one-on-one as she does through twitter. I can understand a celebrity tweating that they have something to announce, a performance, movie, book, etc., but do they accept messages from fans through their twitter accounts? It sounds like so much desperation to me.

Kate is a twit said...

Just a thought-I wonder if Kate knew what the theme of the View's halloween show was. Maybe she was unhappy about the makeup put on her, and that's why she seemed so nervous. She wasn't her glamorous "stah" self and probably felt uncomfortable.

The day Kate was allowed to start tweeting was the day her management stopped caring about her career.

Wow! I just watched the posted clip of The View appearance. Wow! Everyone here was dead on (excuse the pun). That interview could not have been more boring and I loved how Whoopie's question completely threw "her". I found it pathetic that they watch DVD's of their show and all Khate could talk about was "ME, ME, ME". I also noticed the foot shaking. "She" was clearly uncomfortable- and I LOVE that! Let's hope this will be "her" last time on a talk show! Oh- and when "she" said they had their first family meeting ever to discuss the cancellation- what a lie! I thought they had a family meeting when J+K was cancelled. Oh- and then "she" said they were without power all weekend but when pressed- admitted that it came back on last night. I guess "she" didn't have an ear piece. Also seemed like the questions were only coming from Sherri and Elisabeth until Whoopie stepped in with an intelligent one and Khate couldn't come up with something fast enough. It looked like "she" sorta rolled her eyes at Whoopie as if to say WTF?

-------------------------

True. Plus, if she really wanted to share it, in less time than it took her to snap a photo of the magazine and post it, all she had to do was Google the name of the magazine. Then, she could have linked to the website, like I just did. In fact, even though I could tell it was from a magazine, I didn't know which one, and I found it in two seconds by gooling something like "apples almond teeth".

So, Kate could have googled the name of the magazine, found the link and then tweeted the link, saying something about how she just saw this and it looks fun. But, she's too dumb for that, so she had to actually take a photo of her magazine and/or she was being deceptive.

I don't get the 'painting pumpkins' , did Kate mean carving? Never heard of painting them before. Does anyone know if or how much 'The View' pays the guests on the show?

I can't believe she said that the crew comes over to play with the kids, in view of what has been reported re: pornography arrests.Why did she make that comment if no one asked her about the latest news? You would think her lawyers would have told her to not talk about it on the show.

chefsummer said...

Why in God's name would Steve want Kate?. Sure she has money but that only goes so far and he would still hae to live with her and play step-dad to 8 kids.

Wait a minute..... said...

Plenty of people paint pumpkins, especially with younger kids who aren't old enough to use a knife themselves. While I don't think it's as fun as carving, I could see the temptation to paint and not carve with 8 kids.

Pray for those kids. said...

You guys are right - she is so desperate its really pathetic.

I don't think she realizes that nobody will "just give" her a talk show or make her the next Julia Roberts - the people on tv have worked for years to get where they are. She hasn't done ANYTHING. And the talk show hosts need to DO stuff - research, etc... even Oprah had staff meetings, etc... I think that Kate believes that she will only have to work an hour a day, just "chat" and get paid 10 million bucks a year, and live high on the hog for the rest of her life.

Kate - you really need to grow up. You are almost 40. That's just about middle age. You are way past your prime to start a Hollywood career. Its not gonna happen. If it did, it would have by now. You have burned too many bridges and have a reputation of being an extremely difficult person to be around. No studio big wig will call you tomorrow and offer you a job. Get your head out of the clouds, stop the pity party, have some self respect and be a mom to your kids. For once.

--------------------

Yes, I think she had also mentioned painting pumpkins on twitter. We've done that, and you can even buy pumpkins in the supermarket like that. They have funny faces painted on them. Or scary faces. It's a lot easier than carving, so I guess she was taking the easy way out. But, even IF they did shovel snow, which we know they didn't, why did that mean they couldn't paint pumpkins on Saturday? She is such a terrible liar, it isn't even funny anymore!

Pity Party said...

Funny, KG, who hates Halloween had to make her appearance on the View as a zombie - a reality TV zombie as in reality TV is dead or dying. The woman has no Halloween spirit whatsoever.

Dallas Lady said...

No surprise, but she never answered whether she'd be back in time to take her kids trick or treating or do anything with them tonight. Of course, we all know she's not. But she deflected by saying they were GOING to paint pumpkins, but then it SNOWED! (How did the snow stop them from painting pumpkins?) And then never answered about tonight. And the hosts of the View apparently didn't care enough to ask again or get clarification or anything.

Seriously, though, how hard is it for this woman to state her web site address? She was on NATIONAL TV, for crying out loud. Didn't she announce the thing on TV? So she couldn't promote it in two seconds? When they asked her what she's up to professionally? Yes, it's a POS website, but Kate doesn't know that, she thinks it's great.

Such a loser. Alright, well, time to get ready for trick or treaters!

Bill's Mom said...

Kate is definitely an enigma. She vocalizes about how happy and positive she is yet there is nothing happy or positive about her. She loves, loves, loves her career but when on tv she constantly rocks her ankles back and forth, flails her hands and fingers all over the place, rolls her eyes, and if anyone asks her a question, she has to look up at the ceiling to think of an answer.
Every time she was answering a question today, someone would interrupt her with another question. Did anyone else notice this or is it my imagination? That would derail her.
Is it possible that someone else was originally scheduled for the show today and she was a last minute replacement? Was Caroline Manzo on today or scheduled to be there? She was definitely uncomfortable, but that's nothing new. If she is uncomfortable after all these years, she needs to forget it. The only time she is comfortable is when she is screaming at someone. She's in her element then.
By the way, I thought her looks today were an improvement!

The twat's tweets said...

Kate said and did things in complete contradiction from the beginning. I don't understand her saying it was unsafe and they had to get out. There are no large trees overhanging the house so what made it unsafe? The only thing that was unsafe was that the kids had no way of watching videos of themselves and they had to contend with her frazzled self trying to figure out a way to unload the kids on someone so she could get to NYC asap.

She started out with everything being a crisis but when the truth finally came out we find that she's either exaggerated or lied.

She starts out with the lies about the trees being all over her drive and being trapped and then we find out the drive has been plowed, branches moved, and that the trees are merely missing some branches and are NOT half gone!

-I cant it's too upsetting. Trunks left along driveway. Branches everywhere... I am so do upset
-I've lost most of my driveway trees to the heavy snow. We are stuck bc of branches. 8+ inches of snow now
-how about that - just a few hours later she's plowed:
-Driveway is now plowed, branches pushed2the side&still no power/heat.Cereal &fruit salad 4 dinner.Kids ea have flashlight/playing in dark!
-I'm literally sick abt my tree loss. Too expensive2replace trees&they were my favorite part of property!;( Worried abt cold temps overnight
-the trees along driveway (lining the entire driveway) fell. They were planted when house was built- before us!
-yes, lost at least half of each tree and one is now just a trunk :(

-YES!My phone is charging in car while I tweet on iPad using its 17%power remaining! I don't feel alone w just a flashlight now! (she was "drained" yet she decided to tweet instead of curl up with her kids and get some rest)

And then the fireplace situation - she first said all 3 are fake, then we learn they're gas logs and have an electronic start which she says she can't use because of no matches and then we find out she DOES have a candle lighter which would have started her gas grill, her stove, and her fireplaces! WHAT AN IDIOT - and... what's the difference between having matches lying around the house or a butane candle lighter?

-it's just for the look of having a fire :(
-*and the pilot light to light it is electrically run... So no fire place here
not worth it. Heat it gives isn't enough to bother but thanks :)
-I don't have any matches-- they scare me! But I would have tried a candle lighter thingee had I known! :)

Most people who have flashlights have at least a few backup batteries, but this IDIOT thinks because they're brand new that they'll last forever and ever and ever!!!!! Um, Kate, no they won't with the kids playing games with them!

-possibly but they r brand new flash lights (I bought for rv trip and not used) so should be ok
-I put kids2bed on sl bags all in 1 rm.Warned: 'if u r loud u go up2room alone,' thot I'd hav2quiet noise all pm.Left room=all asleep!go fig!
-Kids were playing haunted house in basement.Now playing a flashlight game ie lights click on as quick as poss aft Mady names what 2shine on

"It was always my backup plan, but one day you realize your backup plan won't work to provide for eight kids,"
________________________________________________

Really? Really, Kate? Well then, I must be in the wrong profession as a nurse with a lot of kids.

Do my kids get everything they want? Heck no. Do they have what they need? Of course.

Are we deprived of opportunities? Those really depend on what you define as the "best opportunities," are Kate. As long as your kids are happy, have friends, their interests...just what exactly are they being deprived of again?

Do we have family and friends? Oh yeah, in several states and about the whole block, church family, etc.

Life is only hard for you Kate because you set out to make it that way. I have no sympathy for a woman who whines that a nursing career and a happyily, possibly downsized home full of kids and activities is SOOO horrible.

Get. Over. Yourself. Please. Do us all that one favor.

dee3 said...

"You have to SELL yourself..."
---------

As we all know by now, she really doesn't have any sort of talent that would be needed to continue in the entertainment industry....but what I find amusing is that she's never seemed to think she even needs to sell herself. She doesn't seem to get that a number of things converged to give her the gig in the first place....and in many ways, it was just beginner's luck for her.

The multiples she was hawking happened to be really adorable little half-Asian children and their situation was unique in that regard....probably putting them at the head of the line with all the other families being considered.

Plus....there was a unique chemistry between Kate and Jon that made for horrifying yet interesting watching.

But Kate being Kate....she never even considered these things....but was sure that the big draw and the reason for the success was KATE herself....and the others (Jon, children) were just bit players who were lucky enough to benefit from being in the aura of her success. It never even remotely occurred to her that this might just be a flukey weird combo of a bunch of things that happened simultaneously....and it also didn't (and still doesn't) occur to her that she's not guaranteed success in the entertainment industry for life.

She speaks as though she's ordering a meal....well, I think I'll order the one where I choose to stay on TV because I like it and that's what would work out the best for us....so I think that out of everything on the menu, I want that one.

She thought that the DWTS gig was proof that all the other networks wanted to hire her....wanted to showcase her. She assumed she was a highly-desired commodity....and didn't NEED to sell herself....and that many producers would be clamoring for her just because she's Kate....when at this point, it's almost the total opposite. It's the kids they really wanted all along. It was more like Kate rode in on their coat-tails and not the other way around.

Why am I surprised by this... said...

-I put kids2bed on sl bags all in 1 rm.Warned: 'if u r loud u go up2room alone,' thot I'd hav2quiet noise all pm.Left room=all asleep!go fig!
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

That sounds just about right - bitch, in a snowstorm, with no heat and electricity, threaten your kids with being sent away ALONE, IN THE COLD AND DARK.

How is it she was allowed to breed?

Kate's Cart said...

Looks like I have a lot of catching up. Just got cable back after 2 days. Power still out and probably will be for days to come. Northern CT is a disaster zone. My town is 100% w/o power and the cable feeding the town is in the CT River. Oh what fun! I did see The View today, nothing new w/ Kate, um um um and honestly. Leave it to the "hosts" to bring up Jon though. I thought for sure she was going to have some tiny announcement about a job. Surprised Joy didn't ask her what she is doing to prepare herself for her beloved job in TV since she has no talent and no marketable skills.

Thank God for generators.

TotallyDisgusted said...

After reading about her "harrowing day" and that the trees along the driveway fell and all that was left were trunks, I expected to see pictures with fallen trees crisscrossing her driveway. Her picture of the "worst" tree has a limb broken off and does not need to be replaced. And the other picture with one of the kids in it. Who in the world lets their child go out if there are branches falling off trees and/or the danger of trees falling. There are no words to describe the stupidity of this woman.

If you go back and read through her tweets that day, they are so pathetic it's comical. She's says she is literally sick about her trees, they are just trunks along the driveway, she has no fireplace, then she does but it's for "looks" and then they're electric. She's drained. Actually I think the only thing that was drained was the battery on her Iphone from twittering all day. Oh, and they couldn't paint the pumpkins, cause they had to shovel snow. That would have been the perfect time to do it.

There's more, but I think you catch my drift. Someone should really put them all together and send them to Jay Leno or Jimmy Kimmel or even her "good friend" Joy Behar, along with her pictures. Think of the jokes and what they would do with it. I know she likes any attention (good or bad), but it would show people how pathetic she is.

hey jude said...

I remember them carving pumpkins when Jon was still living there and Kate just wanted them to hurry up.She didn't like the mess, even though the kids and Jon were having a good time.The kids used those plastic knife/carver things and did a fairly good job with help.

I suppose they couldn't do that inside because it was snowing out? It would actually kill Kate to sit down and do something with them, even though it might make her web site slightly more interesting.Ooops, I forgot, only Kate can have all the spotlight,sharing with your own children is a definite no no.

Does anyone think she came back to-day in time to take the kids out trick-or-treating? Yeah, no....probably at Nobu, but maybe Jon has the kids and not a nanny. It is a school night though,supermom should be at home.

Teresa, I looked for you too.We should go to Dwindles' for a drink and candy to-night! Maybe she made candy apples for us; I made caramel ones this year, so good and not- fattening at all.Hallowe'en apples, everyone.That's what our kids used to say instead of trick or treat .

Doorbell's ringing, it has begun.Gotta go.

A career as a filler? said...

TLC stinks said...
There was absolutely no reason for her to be on except as a filler and a chance to be alone with Steve in NYC. Hopefully this was the last time.

Whoopi must have been told to shut up during the interview. No questions regarding the pedophile editor.

So am asking myself, what was the point of rehashing her standard questions and answers? Was this another lame attempt to use this as a tv job interview? Kate has ABSOLUTELY nothing else to talk about other than her kids and herself.

NLAN said...
I don't think her booking on The View had anything at all to do with Khate. It wasn't to promote a damn thing, which is usually the point of segments on this show. I doubt Khate's manager or agent contacted The View and secured this gig. Instead, I think The View decided to do a zombie reality characters theme for the Halloween show and looked around for what reality people they could have on. Khate was probably the easiest one to get booked since she lives nearby and has little else going on. That's it, Khate, nothing else. Just like the rest of America, they "honestly" don't give a crap about you!
______________

Caroline Manzo was listed on my cable guide as a guest on the show today and I'm wondering if Bill Geddy hatched the idea about the show theme being 'reality nightmares' and Caroline had to cancel and Kate was just a convenient fill in. I'm not surprised they didn't address anything of any substance with her - heck, when do they anyway? Kate was filler, that's for sure! She should be embarrassed that she's being asked to be on these shows because they need filler. Do you suppose she thinks she can make a career out of filling a seat as a guest on boring talk shows for the rest of her life? Is there such a thing?

I think Kate's segment being so horrible is a testament to the low quality of the guest, Kate, (obviously) and the hosts of the show. We know Kate doesn't bring anything exciting, insightful, or thought provoking to the table and the hostesses (I refuse to call them 'ladies') have become equally as dull and worthless. The View has turned into a fitting show for guests like Kate Gosselin to appear on. Producers write softball questions for the guests who are lackluster Z-listers and the hosts are too scared of losing their jobs to go off script. Can you tell I don't like the show? sorry

Of course Kate paints pumpkins instead of carves them. Carving them is messy and Kate is not into making or cleaning up messes or letting her kids have FUN. She can't use the excuse that carving is dangerous because they make special kid-safe pumpkin carving tools now. Thank goodness Jon lets them have fun.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

My kids don't enjoy the pumpkin painting nearly as much as the carving. I solved the problem of kids with knives and yet have them involved in the process. I cut the "lid" out, then let them clean out the inners. They love that part. Then I let them design the face, drawing with magic marker what kind of face they want. I do the actual cutting of the front, letting them remove the cut out pieces. That way, they feel that they've done it - and they did do it, at least most of it. When you have several kids and only two or three pumpkins, one of the kids designs the nose, another the eyes, another the mouth, and so on, That way, they are all involved, but never have to touch the knife.

Painted pumpkins are fine during the day, but on Halloween night it's so much more fun to have lighted pumpkins on the front porch.

For once I'll just pick on one lie rather than nail her with everything she's lied or exaggerated. here goes:

-the trees along driveway (lining the entire driveway) fell. They were planted when house was built- before us!-

HER quote on twitter. See, the problem here, kate, is that you had the 'line the driveway with trees' as an episode on a season in the life of the gosselins. Stevie was in charge of coordinating it with Mr. Driveway Tree Liner Guy EVEN though Jon was still the man of the family, well, at least according to what we were being fed in the guise of 'keep the show going like a happily married couple' kind of thingie.

+++++++++++++++++

Shovel snow? Only in her dreams. While it was nasty coming down, there was no need to shovel. It was melted by Sunday morning. There's barely a flake left, only on the grassy surfaces. I have never seen eight inches of snow disappear as fast as it did. Shoveling was nothing more than an excuse. Common sense tells you that if the weather forecast is for sunny, with highs in the fifties the next day, it's going to melt pretty darn fast. What really surprised me was that the trees that were so heavy with wet snow that it looked like a winter wonderland on Saturday, by yesterday there was no hint of having been covered by snow. The leaves are still on the trees, dressed in their autumn colors!

I was thinking about this twittering thing during her storm fiasco. If she would have friends, siblings, parents that she could call for comfort and advice, would she really have done so? Or, did she need her tweeties as a way of evoking sympathy, and more inmportantly ATTENTION? It had to be all about her. Had she called a friend or a brother, it would have gone unnoticed by her adoring public. She needs those sheeple to keep her revelant, for media attention. It's all she has left.

Someone on Twitter asked for a tip (I can't see the original because Kate's page doesn't go back that far and the fan must have deleted it because it's not on her page either -- or Kate made a mistake and replied to the wrong person - it's happened before). Kate sent her a picture of slices of apples which look like a mouth with teeth made of almond pieces. It looks like she took the picture of the magazine page with her phone. You can see the creases in the page in her photo. She didn't lie and say it was her idea, but she also didn't say that it wasn't and that she found it in a magazine or online ie: give credit when she should have.

I don't know, if I was Kate I would really rethink my last statement about going to have fun on The View. After what I've read...it doesn't sound like she had such a fun time as she thought she was going to.

I remember my first Halloween in America! LOL. But we never carved or painted our pumpkins and my parents bought all that hard or sugar-free stuff. One year even gave out toothbrushes.

Anway, I do hope Kate's kids get to have some fun.

Re: Kim Kardahian... unreal! 10 million dollars spent for 2 months of tabloids & tv & ratings, on a 'marriage'.

Ten million!! Kris Jenner is doing a good job as a momager. I wonder how much Kim will get for the 'exclusive story' about her divorce. They know how to make $$, no denying that.

Preesi, don't know if anyone answered you. If you go to this link:

http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/apple-bites-688193/

You will see a photo of apple slices with "almond teeth." Kate posted this EXACT same pic on her site as something "fun" she was doing for her kids. If you compare the two, there's no doubt she either downloaded it or photographed it from print. It's unmistakable, and she more than implied it was her own invention.

So on top of everything else, she's now copying things and allowing people to interpret them as her own original creations. Anyone surprised?

Kate should be smart enough to know that when she posts material from others' publications/ sites (with NO alteration), people out there will inevitably notice and question. So why not just give an attribution? Her inability ever to give anyone else credit is just one of her many fatal flaws. She has a seriously overinflated sense of her own importance--AND intelligence.

Thanks for the link Beth. The twidiot didn't even get where Whoopie was going with that. She looks and acts 100 times worse now than she did when it was JK8. But I felt a bit of sadness for her, somehow, as she appears to be living in a dream world. I feel really sad for the kids. What a bad lot they got in their little lives with her for a mother.

Did I hear her say that some of the crew guys came over and dressed the kids up and took them out to play in the snow?

Kate can stop bitching about her trees or branches or whatever. There are people faring way worse than her from this horrific storm, like my best friend, a tree fell on her house & a big branch fell on her truck. Her & her daughter are staying with us for a few days.

What about kate's tweeter buddies? Has she asked them if they are doing ok, those who live in the storm's path?

Again, I hope everyone who is in the NE area is doing well. There are still parts in & around my area with no power, downed power lines, & the towns have canceled school & postponed trick or treating, set up shelters, etc.

Stay safe & warm. Peace & love to all.

Hippie - sorry about your friend's house. We had downed power lines, lots of trees down on houses and cars, but so far I only heard of one fatality (Berks County). We've had so many wind storms lately that you just kind of hope and pray that the trees are going to stay rooted.

I watched the video from this morning. Can't Kate speak one sentence without umm, umm...I'm not going to lie, honestly...umm...
It's not an exaggeration. She has no public speaking skills whatsoever, and no inflection in her voice. It's droning at its worst.

She should indeed shut up about her problems with the storm because they're nothing compared to what others are going through. One of her tweetie fans said a tree fell on his car and her reply was "NO" and then "I'm so sorry" which is more than I expected.

Kate is a twit said...

Kate said that they couldn't paint pumpkins because they had to shovel snow? If she hadn't been on twitter all day, they would have had enough time to do both. And don't most people shovel after the snow has stopped? She must have been so frantic that she wouldn't be able to get out to go to the View. Just goes to show how SHE always comes first.

My neighbors start shoveling after the first flake falls. Some people are obsessed like that. There is no way that they would shovel that driveway. It's long. It would take quite awhile to do it even with a snow blower. She has someone come and plow. I have no idea what she was shoveling, unless it was a path to the garage. Suggestion...never buy a 1.3 million dollar house that doesn't have an attached garage.
Shoveling was something to keep the kids busy so she wouldn't have to deal with them in the house.

TotallyDisgusted said...

Kate show compassion or concern for anyone else. Not going to happen. Kate lives in one world "Kates World". Everything revolves around her. You would have thought that storm was just over her house. A lot of people had it worse and suffered more damage than she did. She's a sick pathetic beast.

I just watched the clip of Kate on the View. Gosh, they picked the wrong guest if they were looking for someone fun! She was a total downer. Poor Kate had to shovel snow, no power, couldn't paint pumpkins, will she ever find a bf/husband, etc.

She never answered if she'd be back for Halloween for the kids. Doesn't seem to answer any questions, just dances around them. Total debbie downer.

She did seem very uncomfortable and ill at ease. Makes me wonder if she didn't get such a warm welcome backstage.

You know my own parents once told me that, even as a kid? If you ever buy a house in any area like this that is cold, make sure the garage is attached. It's been so drilled in me the first thing I thought when I saw that house was, detached garage--no, no!

I'm not sure anyone mentioned this but am I to understand she left the children all alone in that house while she went to the detached garage and sat in her car and charged her iPhone and iPad? My God, talk about priorities. Those things can take quite awhile to charge, it's no 15 minute charge. My iPhone takes at least half an hour sometimes longer. So she left the children ALONE in the house during a bad storm with no electricity?

This is worse in my mind than even leaving the kids in that van. At least with the van she could run out if she saw anything go wrong. But if she's in some unattached garage how the heck is she supposed to know that everything is okay inside??? I doubt she could even hear the kids call for her! WTF!!!
